  5. A1 #ukedchat Hi, I'm just learning to use social media professionally (never used it privately!) so looking forward to lurking tonight!
  6. @ukedchat A1. Connecting, sharing ideas, seeing how other teachers work, and adapting resources #UKEdChat
  7. Evening! I'm a Business studies teacher in Valencia, recently moved here, but love @ukedchat! #community #teacherchat #collaborate #ukedchat
  8. @ukedchat A1. Where to start?! At basic level I use Social Media to learn and connect with educators. #ukedchat
  9. @ukedchat A1 I use Twitter to gain and share ideas + info. It allows me to connect with ppl beyond local area + to ask ?s #UKEdChat
  10. @ukedchat a1 as a professional network to exchange ideas and thoughts. It's a good chance to mix with a range of prof #UKEdChat
  11. @ICTmagic Sharing ideas with other educators far away from me is fantastic. #UKEdChat
  12. @ukedchat I use social media to connect with real people who I would have trouble finding otherwise. Connect with experts. #ukedchat
  13. @ukedchat #UKEdChat A1: grow PLN, learn, share ideas, develop ideas, keep up to date with changes, research....
  14. #ukedchat A1: I use Twitter to connect with like-minded people, and non like-minded people.. Magpie ideas and maybe inspire others!
  15. @ukedchat #A1 To feel part of a wider movement rather than live in a bubble. Inspires me in my teaching.
  16. #ukedchat use social media to gather ideas and resources for science teaching. Enjoy seeing what other teachers are doing!
  17. @rcoultart That’s what it’s all about. Sharing and learning from others. Take it or leave it #ukedchat
  18. @ukedchat to gain expertise/advice from others, to share resources & ideas, to seek CPD opportunities and make friends! #ukedchat
  19. @Mr_RichTea Schools... a bubble... surely not? Do your school colleagues use Social Media too? #ukedchat
  20. A1 #ukedchat One example (out of the many I could give) is to tweet a daily piece of linguistic advice for Ls.
  21. @keran77 Agree. And it’s so unlike any other social media network. #ukedchat Unless I’m missing something?
  22. @JLJbusinessed Do you ever use social media to debate, or seek out opposing views on edu matters? #ukedchat
  23. @ukedchat I use Twitter for CPD & to share student work w/ school community & seek help. Use Insta to share images with kids #ukedchat
  24. Shout out from Rich,aka Mr Townend aka Mr_RichTea (see what I did there?!) Y4 teacher and Computing Coordinator in North Yorkshire #ukedchat
  25. @GilchristGeorge Do you think that SM has helped you grow professionally then? #UKEdChat
  26. @ukedchat only if a debate arises in a chat forum of teachers :) it's always interesting to hear people's points of view #ukedchat
  27. @ukedchat Connect with others in education and look for fresh ideas and thinking
  28. Never underestimate the power of circle time. Every child deserves a platform to be heard @ThriveApproach #ukedchat @CamulosAcademy #empower
  29. @digicoled Yes I prefer Twitter. I am able to follow people who interest me in terms of education, maths and other teachers. #ukedchat
  30. #UKEdChat Q2. Which social media platforms do you use professionally, and why?

    #UKEdChat Q2. Which social media platforms do you use professionally, and why? [Remember to use the hashtag in your tweets] pic.twitter.com/5whzOatX2b
  31. #ukedchat A1 SM is now my first port of call for looking for innovative ideas from others teachers. I'm an #edtech primary teacher though!
  32. @ukedchat A1: one of the best ways to obtain free CPD, share best practice and network with fellow professionals #ukedchat
  33. I do, influenced thinking understanding and therefore practice #UKEdChat
  34. @digicoled very true! changes for budget cuts, trying to not let them affect your development is key. online courses too! #ukedchat
  35. @ukedchat A2 Twitter. Others. Can anyone recommend any other useful platforms? #UKEdChat
  36. A1: To share and connect with like-minded teachers... Twitter is a mine of amazing people and ideas! #ukedchat
  37. @PaulWN1 Oh you are too kind! 😊 #ukedchat What resources are you interested in?
  38. @ukedchat A2: Twitter and LinkedIn for the global network and professional discussion. Occasionally Facebook on certain groups #UKEdChat
  39. @ukedchat A1: to share a product that helps children build confidence while they have fun performing, also to learn from others #ukedchat
  40. A2 (it's a long story, but I'll limit it to 140 char) I only use Twitter, but I do use it extensively. #UKedchat; many advantages (Ls + Ts)!
  41. @JLJbusinessed Agree, but they can be demanding on your own personal time 🤔 #ukedchat
  42. #ukedchat any views on teachers communicating with pupils on social media. An absolute No-no or useful in highly controlled circumstances?
  43. @ukedchat Very few on Twitter. Some use Facebook for ideas through groups but I find Twitter much more current.
  44. @PaulWN1 @ukedchat Pintrest seems to get a lot of people talking and sharing, but not used it much myself.
  45. @ukedchat Mainly Primary P.E but any apps/assessment techniques are what I normally look for #UKEdChat
  46. #UKedchat@PaulWN1 @ukedchat @Pinterest is also great for teachers and to create boards with pupils
  47. @ukedchat A2: for the moment just Twitter & Facebook, hoping to expand to Instagram too #UKEdChat
  48. A2: Also, such a variety of people on Twitter. Age, phase, innovation. I'm all for social constructivism! #ukedchat
  49. #ukedchat a2 Facebook (unique year 5/6 group) and Twitter (everything else!)
  50. @digicoled yeh, I guess if you speak to SLT they may give you additional Time each week, depends how much you want it I guess. #ukedchat
  51. A1 Another example, #UKEDchat, is the initiative that @HendrikxHans & I have taken since the beginning of 2017: the #phrasaladay movement.
  52. A2 LinkedIn to publish articles, Facebook groups, Twitter to network, get ideas or info, e-portfolio to showcase my PhD thesis #ukedchat  https://twitter.com/ukedchat/status/829784499823198209 
  53. @ukedchat A2 Tend to use Twitter as I can follow people + other ppl seem to use it regularly so info re CPD, events are shared #ukedchat
  54. @fameidle Do you favour text based posts over images and videos? #ukedchat
  55. A1: I use it to challenge my ideas/beliefs etc. Always good to learn from others, be open-minded & curious. Connectivity is key. #UKEdChat
  56. @ukedchat I use social media for building and finding my tribe :))
  57. @ukedchat Twitter for reaching grownups, Insta for sharing images with kids and FB for GCSE & Alevel Study groups #ukedchat
  58. @ukedchat A2: Pinterest and StaffRm are also fantastic resources for ideas #UKEdChat
  59. @JLJbusinessed @ukedchat Yeah maybe not. Assuming College/Uni level it would be secure and useful? #UKEdChat
  60. #UKEdChat Q3. Are you a consumer or a producer of content, and what content do you focus on?
[Remember to use the hashtag in your tweets] https://t.co/pSZLBeRzDS
    #UKEdChat Q3. Are you a consumer or a producer of content, and what content do you focus on? [Remember to use the hashtag in your tweets] pic.twitter.com/pSZLBeRzDS
  61. #UKEdChat connecting with authors of books on twitter for pupils is also great. @whatSFSaid responded to myY4 class about #varjakpaw
  62. @ukedchat Yes as I've just started on social media but I have a couple of YouTube clips I use. I'd love to gather photos to share #UKEdChat
  63. A1 - to network, showcase my articles & CV, meet & learn from interesting people, to take part in discussions #ukedchat  https://twitter.com/ukedchat/status/829782416042635268 
  64. @PaulWN1 @ukedchat I'm secondary, and I'd use it with any of them if it was a private account and parental permission obv. #ukdchat
  65. @mrsjmasters Do you think this separation of function of platforms is common? #ukedchat
  66. #ukedchat Can't interact with students online - I teach Year 6!
  67. @seasonedcomms I avoid it. We have Class Dojo and Seesaw for pupil teacher communication. Guess it's kinda SM but aimed at them. #ukedchat
  68. A3: I'm currently a consumer but desire to be a producer of SM. #UKEdChat
  69. @ukedchat A3 Consumer. Assessment ideas and anything for active learning #UKEdChat
  70. A0 hello all, I'm Rossana, work for the staff development forum. Worked as lecturer, researcher and blended learning specialist #ukedchat  https://twitter.com/ukedchat/status/829782041646465028 
  71. #UKEdChat we posted pupil work about #varjakpaw to @whatSFSaid and they got such a kick out of his responses. Grt motivation for them
  72. @ukedchat #UKEdChat A3: bit of both, Typically focus on physics, leadership, development or T&L
  73. @ukedchat Try my best to be both! I think it's important to share ideas, but don't feel I'm creative enough! T&L ideas I can adapt #ukedchat
  74. @ukedchat A3: Both - never stop learning and also like to write blogs to share my own experiences and ideas #ukedchat
  75. @ukedchat new ideas. Good to network and promote what we offer and see ideas from across the world #UKEdChat
  76. @ukedchat A3. A bit of both. Sometimes I consume when I don’t expect it. Sharing is key though #ukedchat Proper credit is also necessary.
  77. I Skyped with some teachers in India, they said teachers there use Yammer. Anyone familiar with this program? #ukedchat
  78. A3 I'm a consumer, variety of interest, from technology, leadership, entrepreneurs, mindfulness, flowers #ukedchat  https://twitter.com/ukedchat/status/829785953707388928 
  79. @ukedchat I like to think so: 3600 pupils in Den Bosch learn English from age of 4 through Such Fun;long listed for #ELTons local innovation
  80. @ukedchat depends on my need at the time and what info I am after; is it available readily? #UKEdChat is my number one point of reference!
  81. A3 I'm a producer of content linkedin blog on Coaching, learning and development, extract pearls from others' blogs #ukedchat  https://twitter.com/ukedchat/status/829785953707388928 
  82. A3 I'm both a consumer and a producer of content. #UKEdchat. All depends on context, time and needs. #education cc @slk8500
  83. @ukedchat @PaulWN1 exam tips, offer help, WAGOLL, student reminders, praise to students, extension tasks, group tasks in action. #ukedchat
  84. A3: I like to think I'm both but unless I get more reads on my blogs, I'm more of a consumer! 😂 love the creativity of producing #ukedchat
  85. #UKedchat @ukedchat My pupils produce content & share via our @YouTube channel. Mainly mini tutorial to explain other others.
  86. #UKEdChat Q4. What is the role of social video in your teaching and CPD? (YouTube, Instagram, SnapChat, Facebook Live, Periscope etc) https://t.co/qKjOPOsm8Q
    #UKEdChat Q4. What is the role of social video in your teaching and CPD? (YouTube, Instagram, SnapChat, Facebook Live, Periscope etc) pic.twitter.com/qKjOPOsm8Q
  87. #UKedchat @ukedchat I also create & share my own content & #edtech tips on my blog. See above my twitter profile. Love that teachers share
  88. @ukedchat yes - the nature of social media means different ages use different platforms. Very few kids below y11 use FB anymore #ukedchat
  89. A3 When we say 'content', what precisely do we mean? #UKEdChat
  90. @ukedchat the sheer beauty of #twitter & a community like #UKEdChat enables both to happen in unison and harmony! Share expertise #UKEdChat
  91. @ukedchat @Dr_R_Espinoza great to look at new ideas and try them out. A supportive community always helps
  92. @watertankmath I'm still searching, but with my limited Spanish, not so far. Twitter really isn't big here at all for education. #ukedchat
  93. @ukedchat We use youtube on a daily basis and share our own social videos with pupils abroad, for example in @eTwinning_nl projects #suchfun
  94. #ukedchat A3 I produce and consume. Main focus on year 6, primary in general and maths.
  95. A4 Often use YouTube clips as either a 'hook' or to check contextualise/ motivate learning. Great for visual lit etc #UKEdChat
  96. @IaninSheffield I perceive it as ‘uploading content to platforms to share’, or something like that, perhaps. #ukedchat
  97. @ukedchat A3: Proud producer of content-Fame Idle is written especially as a Y6 end of term production & 150 schools have staged! #ukedchat
  98. @ukedchat mainly snapchat & insta. Trying to encourage 6th form to use Twitter in a professional capacity - an online CV #ukedchat
  99. @ukedchat A3 Both. I started a blog this year as a challenge. The content I focus on tends to be to improve pedagogy and maths 😀 #UKEdChat
  100. @ukedchat #ukedchat I love to use YouTube more but it's blocked on my schools filters !
  101. A4: YouTube is a great resource that many @Evolve_Impact Health Mentors use to develop skills and technique #UKEdChat
  102. @mrsjmasters @ukedchat my school has advised no social media use with pupils due to safeguarding concerns. Too risk adverse? Any thoughts?
  103. @ukedchat A4 YouTube at the start of a new unit to show pupils the sport in action and to help explain what the aims for them are #UKEdChat
  104. @ukedchat learning through the wealth of connections and conversations being had - cheap, yet highly effective CPD #winning
  105. @ukedchat A4 YouTube has also been useful for different warm up videos and for pupils to see skills performed in real games #UKEdChat
  106. #UKEdChat A2 Twitter. Would use Instagram and Pinterest more if easier to set a filtered account.
  107. @digicoled Ah, but does that mean teaching resources? Links? Maybe even blog posts? #UKEdChat
  108. @UKEd_SE @ukedchat I have not ! Have you read my blog? Outfacing leadership?
  109. @seasonedcomms @ukedchat :( sad times. I have no issue with it - I'm in a large group with them so everything is 'public' between the group
  110. @KLMorgan_2 @ukedchat This is true - teachers on social media are more committed/engaged therefore generally more positive
  111. @IaninSheffield No. Anything that is relevant, inspiring and/or informative to others (pupils, colleagues etc) IMHO #UKEdChat
  112. A4 You Tube can be invaluable as a resource. Like using TED for inspiration as part of CPD for staff #ukedchat
  113. #UKEdChat A3 both and focus is on stuff that works and is effective. Everyone is different.
  114. @ukedchat A4 I 💜 using film/music to inspire writing and for science / topic learning. Able to use YouTube with my teacher login 👍#UKEdChat
  115. #UKEdChat Q5. What concerns or problems have you had about using social media as an educator?

    #UKEdChat Q5. What concerns or problems have you had about using social media as an educator? [Remember to use the hashtag in your tweets] pic.twitter.com/p2evySPTgW
  116. A4 Love sharing my classes work on twitter and Facebook and telling them the results #ukedchat
  117. @ukedchat A5. One major consideration is that comments/opinions are taken completely out of context #UKEdChat
  118. A5 Unfortunately, trolls have popped up in one of my twitter-fed lessons, #UKEdchat. That was when #basotoday was the hashtag ...
  119. #ukedchat A2 twitter and LinkedIn & @Yammer on @GlowScot love fact that you can share, communicate and collaborate with others #MIEExpert
  120. @ukedchat A5. Or taking credit for creating something that they found on social media, without offering credit to original source #ukedchat
  121. #ukedchat we made propaganda videos on iMovie and then put Polish, Welsh and Albanian subtitles on. First and second draft went on Seesaw!
  122. @chrisbourne2win from a teacher point of view, videos to consolidate learning and understanding, but what can the students do? #ukedchat
  123. @ukedchat personally I'm a consumer (i'm a supply teacher) but luckily I get to see lots of Twinkl resources thru my role online #UKEdChat
  124. @jamie2034 presumably this is also a helpful engagement tool with their parents? #ukedchat
  125. #UKedchat A5 (c'd) @NVandenAbeele You will quickly find out which of the 9 Oct tweets was not part of the educational feed ...
  126. @ukedchat #A4 YouTube in primary but the ads annoy me...and suggested vids, comments. Google need to provide alternative for educators.
  127. @ukedchat A5. Fear of identification holds people back of sharing their practice or what they’ve learned. Can appear conformist #ukedchat
  128. #ukedchat Q5 the safeguarding - pupils tracing your life scares me ... I don't use Fb at all now ...
  129. @JLJbusinessed their own YouTube blog of their learning? On a private network so it's not too open #ukedchat
  130. @NVandenAbeele Interested in how you dealt with that? #UKEdchat (&what year group was it?)
  131. Am I the only person not seeing the questions on the latest feed?? #ukedchat
  132. @ukedchat Parents/Pupils following accounts. This has been a concern not a problem #UKEdChat
  133. @ukedchat Q2. I use Pinterest a lot to get ideas, esp. crafty things. Twitter and Facebook of course are also v. useful #UKEdChat
  134. Having fun joining in with #ukedchat and listening to acoustic classic music on vintage tv whilst also folding laundry 🙂
  135. @IaninSheffield #Ukedchat Higher education, 1st or 2nd bachelor year. Dealt w/ it: I didn't, just ignored that one tweet ...
  136. @ukedchat A5. Finally, SM use being used as a surveillance tool by people who really should know better #ukedchat & worry about reputation
  137. A5: everything you put on social media stays in the huge cloud that is the Internet, even if seemingly deleted #UKEdChat
  138. @twinklresources Do you fear that too many teachers are mostly consumers of other people's materials? Long-term consequences? #ukedchat
  139. #ukedchat A3 bit of both tweet offer suggestions and also if looking for assurance , focus on @MicrosoftForms @OneNoteEDU @sway #leadership
  140. @MrPatelsawesome @chrisbourne2win but it's a nightmare when the learning at home doesn't happen, or only a few people do it. #ukedchat
  141. #ukedchat A5 Am I using something that my children will misuse and course them a problem. It's out there though so use it.
  142. A5 For some, there's reluctance to share opinions for fear of being 'shouted down' etc. Different perspectives are vital though #ukedchat
  143. @Mroberts90Matt I think 'questions' certainly have value as content. They open dialogue provided the platform enables it #UKEdChat
  144. @ukedchat #ukedchat Q3 I consume English content but have to produce Welsh content as nobody else does.
  145. A5 in an educational setting, the target audience kind of have to be ready for it. The required level of maturity & expectations #ukedchat  https://twitter.com/ukedchat/status/829789501765599235 
  146. @ukedchat good Q! I guess creativity takes a hit but good ideas being shared more raises standards overall? Tough balance :) Ollie #UKEdChat
  147. #UKEdChat Q5 again. What concerns or problems have you had about using social media as an educator?
[Remember to use the hashtag] https://t.co/KqZqNjEf2z
    #UKEdChat Q5 again. What concerns or problems have you had about using social media as an educator? [Remember to use the hashtag] pic.twitter.com/KqZqNjEf2z
  148. @NVandenAbeele Interesting. Do you think that would work with, say a KS4 class? Or might you use it as a 'teachable moment?' #UKEdChat
  149. @ukedchat @keran77 @Mroberts90Matt @TaffTykeC like, am I being appropriate, should I have to be, what will parents think?
  150. @ukedchat @mrsjmasters Oovoo and Whisper are becoming popular. Roblox is used by many in primary schools. It's age appropriate too.
  151. @ukedchat Negative comments on posts, constructive criticism is good. Twitter trolls ruin my day! #costsnothingtobenice #ukedchat #kindness
  152. #ukedchat A5 - some people are really put off by comments said when others voice strong opinions - can drag people down
  153. @ukedchat # use Facebook and Pinterest for ideas, love using Twitter as well now, great place to #connect #cpd #share #ukedchat
  154. @chrisbourne2win It is a concern, but considered and supported opinions are welcomed. Do we all want to conform? #UKEdChat
  155. #UKEdChat Q6. Do you use social media with your pupils? How? Why?
[Remember to use the hashtag in your tweets] https://t.co/C5nmL04XLv
    #UKEdChat Q6. Do you use social media with your pupils? How? Why? [Remember to use the hashtag in your tweets] pic.twitter.com/C5nmL04XLv
  156. @MrPatelsawesome @chrisbourne2win true but traditional tends to be consolidation, not learning new stuff for next lesson #ukedchat
  157. #ukedchat A4 diff as most SM blocked in schools for pupils use you tube @TED_ED part of teaching introducing new topic or consolidating
  158. #ukedchat I moderate our primary school blog & 99% of pupils comments are positive -the 1% that aren't are then taught how to comment well
  159. A6: something that I've always considered but there are so many thoughts and processes to take into account #ukedchat
  160. #ukedchat #A5 Some of the children at school found my YouTube channel today and disliked all my vids. Little monkeys!
  161. @ukedchat #ukedchat Q6 I don't to be honest - although I need to experiment ...
  162. @ukedchat No. Too risky. Primary level. Already too many with social media accounts when they aren't of age #UKEdChat
  163. @IaninSheffield Being a language teacher, grammar/vocab/skills are the main reason to use Twitter, so content = mostly not key #ukedchat
  164. @ukedchat I wouldn't want to be seen as encouraging use of social media when I think at least 13 is a fair age to use it #UKEdChat
  165. #ukedchat A5 I see it as an essential skill to teach pupils how to use SM responsibly & skilfully as a research tool @ukedchat
  166. @ukedchat #ukedchat lack of time! Fear of safeguarding! Lack of knowledge ... :(
  167. @PaulWN1 @ukedchat could be a good source of education in terms of online bullying, staying safe etc #UKEdChat
  168. A5 No-one worry about the amount of time they spend using social media, like this hour tonight, for which they get no recognition? #UKEdChat
  169. @ukedchat Parent/Pupil attempted interaction with school or staff accounts. We can't control what they might post #UKEdChat
  170. @IaninSheffield So, to answer your question: yes! definitively, all dep on content & this = what trolls might use #ukedchat
  171. #UKEdChat Q6 again. Do you use social media with your pupils? How? Why?
[Remember to use the hashtag in your tweets] https://t.co/l24jY6cRdL
    #UKEdChat Q6 again. Do you use social media with your pupils? How? Why? [Remember to use the hashtag in your tweets] pic.twitter.com/l24jY6cRdL
  172. @JLJbusinessed @ukedchat Where do you get trolls? I've not experienced this yet fortunately!
  173. #ukedchat sometimes problems out of school are multiplied making it diff for council to open up SM in school #fear
  174. @ukedchat A6: only a subject twitter account to give up to date info about developments & news in #physics or a good video link! #UKEdChat
  175. @ukedchat #ukedchat I really want to start a flipped learning section for my sixth form --- finding the time ...
  176. Interesting! Do I need to envision its use like Facebook or Twitter? There r Yammer groups 2 join correct? Any math ones u know? #ukedchat  https://twitter.com/gibsoni/status/829792083691110405 
  177. #ukedchat #A6 At primary level, we encourage use of @KidblogDotOrg for safe and secure intro to world of social networking.
  178. @ukedchat A6 Not yet.Computing co-od wants to start a school blog to share info with parents + teach chn about using social media #UKEdChat
  179. @ukedchat #UKEdChat we have created a Twitter revision campaign for Y10 and Y11 with daily revision tweets #revisechurchilleng
  180. @IaninSheffield I think that recognition by building communities is sometimes more valued and worthwhile than ‘formal’ recognition #UKEdChat
  181. I use it,considering the amount of time students spend on it,why not post them a little reminder, "homework due tomorrow!" #ukedchat
  182. @ukedchat FB groups 1 for each yr grp 11-13. Post extension links, hwk sheets, revision websites, reminders, place to ask for help #ukedchat
  183. #UKEdChat Q7. Is there a role for using social media with your school community?

    #UKEdChat Q7. Is there a role for using social media with your school community? [Remember to use the hashtag in your tweets] pic.twitter.com/uKovEtMmeb
  184. @digicoled Agreed, but valued personally, rather than by colleagues or school? #UKEdChat
  185. @watertankmath #ukedchat I am in Scotland we use @GlowScot access @Yammer there are maths groups for teac for schools to use with clssses
  186. Kids over here in America are big-time into Snapchat now. They do also use Instagram and some Twitter but Snapchat is number one. #ukedchat
  187. @ukedchat Yes. You need to also think about the SM being used by parents, and manipulate these to build engaged connections #ukedchat
  188. @ukedchat @PaulWN1 1) Age restrictions. Sends out wrong message to encourage use. 2) Children don't have maturity to use safely/responsibly.
  189. @watertankmath #ukedchat so totally safe for pup and teach , without a glow log on Cant access @Yammer
  190. @ukedchat A7: the World is now dominated by social media. Education may now need to run with the times and utilise it #ukedchat
  191. @Mroberts90Matt @ukedchat Hope they stay away from you! Sometimes it's jealousy or spotting tiny mistakes in student work #ukedchat
  192. @IaninSheffield That’s it, and so many other opportunities come via building relationships outside your ‘normal’ community #ukedchat
  193. @ukedchat #UKEdChat A6 wanted to do silent debates in class on twitter - concerned about the perception of my students in silent on phones 📱
  194. @Mroberts90Matt Now *that's* interesting! So it's more like downtime, rather than ... work? #UKEdChat
  195. #UKedchat @ukedchat I authored an EDEXCEL BTEC media unit on creating a media campaign using social media. It's formally taught now.
  196. #UKEdChat A6 - definitely not! Teach Year 6 - to be honest we have a bit of an issue with SM and our kids right now, awful stuff!!
  197. @ukedchat Social media, managed frequently, responsibly, and engagingly is a great opportunity to open the school to the community #ukedchat
  198. @ukedchat @tinawatsonteach upskilling parents, providing information, adding in examples of great work, homelearning ideas #ukedchat
  199. #UKEdChat Q7 again. Is there a role for using social media with your school community?

  200. @ukedchat #ukedchat Yes - news, sharing moments of pride, sharing with S's, valuaing success, effort and creating positive ethos 😀
  201. #UKEdChat A6 use SM in sch communicate with stakeholders. I use @Yammer , upload homework , days lessons for absences , notification tests
  202. A6 #ukedchat And using my projected timeline as a way to foster speaking skills & grammar "React to one tweet using the (...) form" #EFL
  203. @ukedchat A4 Yes. School account when used properly to share successes #UKEdChat
  204. #ukedchat Interesting discussion on social media.This week we had Safer Internet Day. The theme was digital footprints.Somthing to consider.
  205. A6 Understand why FBook might be a no no, but why not, say social bookmarking? e.g. Diigo Less about interacting, more sharing? #UKEdChat
  206. @ukedchat Yes, just English Dept. Parents, students like it. It is in infancy as started Jan 1, but seems valuable so far, tchs in dept use
  207. I'm surprised how many schools still don't issue a social media policy or guidance to protect pupils and staff. #ukedchat
  208. #UKEdChat Q8. Work/life balance: How do you use social media outside of your professional life?

  209. @ukedchat I fear that there are many SLT members SCARED of Social Media, and are fearful, rather than seeing the opportunities #UKEdChat
  210. #ukedchat A7 totally a great way to interact with stakeholders in your local and wider community , easy to share job vacancies for pup
  211. @ukedchat Yes, extremely, they have contributed too. Obv. within the accepted boundaries re Data prot, sharing of info etc.
  212. @RiscaCCS_Head At the end of the day, the policy should = COMMON SENSE! It’s that simple, no need to over-complicate #UKEdChat IMHO
  213. #ukedchat A7 show what's going on in school , pupil success and achievements
  214. @JLJbusinessed 'Motivating' yep. So motivating as in uplifting, or as in inspiring ... or all of the above? ;-) #UKEdChat @Mroberts90Matt
  215. #UKEdChat Q8 again. Work/life balance: How do you use social media outside of your professional life?

  216. @ukedchat #ukedchat I don't use social media for anything other than work... But I need to find the balance (work/life) in general
  217. @Mroberts90Matt That's how I felt too, but although not work, still learning *for* work? At least sometimes? #UKEdChat @JLJbusinessed
  218. #ukedchat #sid2017 Some kids were unhappy that parents& school share pics of them.Am thinking about gaining child as well as parent consent.
  219. @ukedchat I use it a lot to connect with friends, colleagues and those I want to learn from. It's also my main source of news. #UKEdChat
  220. @ukedchat A8: keep in touch with friends and family, see other perspectives of the World and promote my journalism! #UKEdChat #journalism
  221. @IaninSheffield @Mroberts90Matt both I guess. Getting new ideas, speaking to others more experienced. Probably more inspiring #ukedchat
  222. @chrisbourne2win Interested in the journalism. Could you expand on how you use social media in that arena? #ukedchat
  223. #UKEdChat A8 - I don't that much, just to casually interact with family and friends occasionally.
  224. @ukedchat A8 To keep in touch with friends/family. To communicate #UKEdChat
  225. Thank you @ukedchat it's been really interesting to share where I could & a great topic. #UKEdChat
  226. A8 In additn 2 prof learning opportunities, does anyone get anything from soc med which helps their ... well-being? Stress levels? #UKEdChat
  227. #UKEdChat A8 don't SM are professional only , don't see the point of sharing what I had for my dinner pic.twitter.com/ImegbmEgzq
  228. #UKEdChat #q8 @ukedchat My private Twitter is strictly friends/family only 2catch up with celeb/beauty/music news! (& the odd funny meme!)
  229. #ukedchat #Q7 Yes definitely, for sharing with parents. But how much is too much to share? Where do we stop?
  230. @digicoled @ukedchat I think the opportunities are seen but we hear so many horror stories that some fear is inevitable. Shame really.
  231. @ukedchat Aw, thank you :-) I'll surbey tch's and S's towards exam time on how useful this has been too
  232. @ColonelPanixx @ukedchat Yes, the Daily Mail has a lot to answer for! Most of it is hyperbole, and people buy into the moral panic #ukedchat
  233. @chrisbourne2win @ukedchat I'm taking no credit! Just a Valencia season ticket holder giving my opinions! #ukedchat
  234. A8 good question. I mostly use social for a combo of professional and personal life. Facebook would be more personal #ukedchat  https://twitter.com/ukedchat/status/829795627852820481 
  235. @ukedchat A8: Twitter professional, Facebook&snapchat personal. Keep them separate #ukedchat #everybodywins
  236. @JLJbusinessed @ukedchat Ah right, I've not shared much children's work - aiming to though!
  237. Interesting @IaninSheffield @digicoled that social media for professional learning goes unrecognised as PL. #UKedchat
  238. @digicoled @ukedchat Perhaps as SLTs are gradually filled by a generation that's comfortable with SM, we will see a shift in practice...
  239. @debsnet @IaninSheffield I believe that is correct at the moment, but things can (and will) change IMHO #UKEdChat
  240. @digicoled @ukedchat At the moment, I do feel a generational chasm exists between SLT/staff when it comes to applying tech in education.
  241. @digicoled @IaninSheffield I agree. My PhD + my work are about transformational PL. Social media, podcasts etc have a role. #UKedchat
  242. Missed the end of #ukedchat as was driving! Got to wait another whole week!
